Russian Honey Cake

 About a week ago I found out that my boyfriend's favourite cake is honey cake, so I decided to be very nice and try to make it for him. I have never done it or eaten it before, so it was quite a challenge. I really like baking though, so I thought it won't be that bad. I was looking for some recipes online and found a good one here. It didn't take that long to make it, but the recipe says you should let the cake sit 6 to 8 hours before serving. Well, my dad was really impatient and took the first slice after less than 4 hours. The cake itself is really sweet as it contains sugar, honey and condensed milk.

Have a nice day,

REVIEW: Master Curl Mascara Oriflame

As I said my Oriflame order was delivered a few days ago, so I'm already trying out the new products. Today, I'm going to review Master Curl Mascara. Straight away I can say it is not my favourite. My first experience with it wasn't the best, so I think I will stick with my old mascaras. I'm a bit disappointed :(

What the company claims:
- the mascara creates up to 43^ lash curl
- long- lasting curl effect
- super-arched brush curls and stretches every lash

This is what it looks like on the eyes:

Size: 8 ml
Price: 12.45 ( Exclusive launch offer: 8.25)

- not too pricey
- easy to wipe off

- I don't agree that this mascara stretches every lash. As you can see on the picture above, with the second coat, the lashes were clumping.
- it doesn't really curl the lashes
- it leaves a lot of product on the brush

Would I buy again? No

Have any of you tried this mascara? What was your opinion?

Tip of the week #2

Try this, it really works! 

DIY glitter shoes

 I love these shoes soo much, but at this stage there are scratches all over them, so I've decided to give them a little makeover. If you have any shoes that need a little something extra, here's what you will need:

- shoes
- glue
- glitter
- brush
- hairspray 

1. Apply glue on the shoes section by section using the brush. Don't make the sections too big cause the glue will dry out before you sprinkle it with glitter.

2. Sprinkle the glitter on the glued shoe

3. Spray the shoes with hairspray (or any other spray that will keep the glitter in place)


Hope you liked this, have a nice day!!

DIY: heart cut-out shirt

Good afternoon :) Today I've prepared a DIY tutorial - the effects of Friday afternoon's boredom. 

This was very easy and didn't take a lot of time ( approx 40 mins). Unfortunately my glue isn't the best, and some parts started to detach.. I really need to buy a proper fabric glue pronto!

So that is it for today, let me know if you liked this DIY tutorial :)
